We returned once again to 1988, navigating the time eddies and rapids with instruments that are part machine and part intuition. The trip was uneventful except for a check chrono-manifold light that can wait until next week. There was talk of the great drought, trendy fashions of the day and the fearsome death toll that included Roy Orbison and Roy Buchanan. The Regular Guy took us back to the show for a look at the best movies of the year and made a good case that Die Hard was a great Christmas flick. As always, we enjoyed a sampling of the years best music. Here's the playlist:
